Five Orland Park restaurants will offer simultaneous Irish entertainment with the community's second Irish Music Trolley Event transporting patrons between the establishments.

The Brass Tap, Square Celt, Irish Patriot, Paddy B’s, and Mackeys Pub will participate in the 2nd Annual Irish Music Pub Trolley Event on Saturday, March 14 from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m.

“People really enjoyed riding the trolleys to the different spots last year so they’re adding a second trolley to accommodate even more people. This is a nice example of Orland Park restaurants working together to create a nice, cultural event for the community,” said Orland Park Mayor Dan McLaughlin.

Two trolleys will offer a hop on hop off route. There is no charge to ride the trolleys and reservations are not required. Further information is available by contacting any of the five establishments.

The second trolley will be 15 minutes behind the first following the same route.

“All of the participating restaurants are near 143rd Street so patrons can take the trolleys from place to place to enjoy some great Irish entertainment,” the mayor said.
